Gleeson named in England T20 squad versus India

England have called up uncapped Lancashire seamer Richard Gleeson for their Twenty20 international series against India.

Gleeson, 34, has taken 70 wickets in 64 domestic T20 matches, including a career-best 5-33 against Worcestershire Rapids in this season's Blast.

New England limited-overs captain Jos Buttler will take charge of an otherwise familiar squad for the three T20s and three one-day internationals.

The first T20 is on 7 July.

Adil Rashid has been given permission by the England & Wales Cricket Board to miss both series to make The Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca so Lancashire's Matthew Parkinson will be England's frontline spinner.

Yorkshire's Harry Brook, who has scored 384 runs in nine innings in this season's Blast at an average of 48.00, is also named in both white-ball squads.

He made his sole T20 appearance for England against West Indies during the winter.

The T20 and ODI series will be Buttler's first in charge since replacing World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, who retired from international cricket this week after injury and form struggles.
